Microagressions: A Ton of Feathers is still a Ton (Waterloo)
Wed, 7 December 2016, 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM EST
The Canadian Centre for Women in Science, Engineering, Trades and Technology (WinSETT Centre) and the Unviersity of Waterloo is bringing its first offering to Waterloo.
Microagressions are offhand subtle expressions of implicit bias: statements, assumptions and interruptions that impact how we perceive ourselves and others. They can be damaging to an inclusive and supportive workplace culture – particularly the Science, Engineering, Trades and Technology (SETT) workplace culture where women are not on an equal basis with men in terms of participation and leadership.
This session is focused on understanding and identifying Microagressions at work through discussion, self-reflection, and experience-based learning. Led by a professional WinSETT facilitator, at the end of the session you will better:
Understand Gender-based Microagressions and their impact on Women in SETT
Appreciate that Gender-based Microagressions can be amplified in SETT workplaces (while also being the perfect place to work on them)
Discuss examples of Gender-based Microagressions
Have methods to deal with Microagression if you’re a woman in SETT
Be better able to deal with Microaggressions if you employ/manage/work with women in SETT
